The Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association has announced the untimely death of William Douglas Sorby, a well-regarded Industrial Relations personnel.

Mr Sorby was a former Industrial Relations Consultant who had an office in the then “Fiji Employers Federation” (FEF).

He was the “go-to” person when Fiji Hotel Association (FHA) members needed Industrial Relations support.

Mr Sorby also served on the FHA HR/IR Committee and was a key part of the team that negotiated the generic Collective Agreement (CA) still in use today.

Mr Sorby’s eldest daughter, Karen Sorby – Director of Human Resources, currently sits on the same FHA HR committee.

Association chief executive, Michael Wong, said: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this sad time.”

A joint Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation and Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association delegation visited the family yesterday afternoon.

The funeral service for Mr Sorby will take place tomorrow at 10am the Butt Street Methodist Church in Suva.

This will be followed by a cremation at Dignified Cremations, Lot 1, Adi Lady Davila Ganilau Rd, Nakasi.
